Alan Quittner is a real gem. He goes out of his way to make you comfortable. My sister, my friend and I, stayed two nights at this B & B. My daughter was getting married at the Common Ground Center, near by. I needed to have some items delivered for the wedding, and Alan was kind enough to accept them and store them for me. He made us a wonderful breakfast, and was helpful with directions, (although we still got lost on the beautiful country roads!) Hey, California is a long ways away from Vermont! I do highly recommend that if you want a place that makes you feel "like home", Alan's Quittners Starksview Inn is just the place. Thank you Allan for your hospitality!
